Electronics S1W5: Resistors in Series

Electronics S1W5: Resistors in Series

Resistors can be connected in 1 of 4 configurations. The first of these, series resistors, is covered in this class.

What you’ll learn

  • Determine the value of all electronic characteristics (voltage, current, resistance, power) of any series resistive circuit.
  • State the four basic rules governing series resistor circuits.


  • It would be helpful if the student understood Ohm’s Law, however, in this course, Ohm’s Law is provided on the screen whenever needed for computations.


Electronics: Resistors in Series S1W5

This Basics Electronics Course will teach you how to solve series resistor circuits. To understand Direct Current (DC) Electronics, you need to master four resistor configurations:

  1. Series Resistor Circuits
  2. Parallel Resistor Circuits
  3. Series-Parallel Resistor Circuits
  4. Complex Resistor Circuits

This course will teach you to master the first category above.

These are the topics covered in this course:

  • Master and solve series resistor circuits using Ohm’s Law.
  • Learn to correctly apply Ohm’s Law to series resistive circuits.
  • Recognize the “Two Out of Three” rule that will allow you to apply the correct formula to the solution of a circuit.
  • Understand the correct use of the Ohm’s Law Triangle.
  • Understand the correct use of the Ohm’s Law Wheel.

In other words, you will understand exactly how to solve series circuit resistor problems!

Thiscourse is important if you wish to understand electronics. The analysis of basic series circuits is a fundamental tool that you must master to properly troubleshoot, analyze and maintain electronic equipment. Ohm’s Law states the basic relationships between voltage, current and resistance in an electronic circuit. This information is mandatory for any hobbyist or professional who needs to understand how electronic circuits work. This course is a quality product taught by a college instructor who has been teaching electronics for over twenty years. It is the equivalent of a full week of college level training at a community college or technical university.

The primary teaching method is instructor led lectures using PowerPoint slide presentations. Drawings, images and schematics are used to clearly illustrate each electronic principle. There are ten separate lectures that take you through the concepts of Ohm’s Law and series circuits in a clear, simple manner. A number of quizzes are included test your retention of the lecture material.

At the end of this course, you will have a solid grasp of the principles of Ohm’s Law and the application of this law to the solution of electronic circuit problems.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is for students who desire to know how electronic circuits work.
  • This is part of a full semester of electronics training titled “DC Electronics”, where students learn the characteristics of Direct Current electronic circuits. Major topics include series circuits, parallel circuits and series-parallel circuits.
